Restaurant in water – level 1

13-10-2021 15:00

This news is about a restaurant north of Bangkok, Thailand. The restaurant is near the Chao Phraya River. The owner has big problems during the coronavirus.

More problems come last week. The water in the river rises. The owner thinks that it is the end of his business.

He still does not close the restaurant. People sit at tables. There is water everywhere.

Sometimes a wave comes. People get wet. They enjoy it. Other people watch videos from the restaurant on social media. They visit the place, too.

The restaurant has a special atmosphere. People enjoy the food. They watch the sunset above the river. It does not bother them if they get wet.

Difficult words: rise (to go up), wave (when water moves to the beach or land), atmosphere (the mood of a place).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
